Emily Cavanagh


Emily Cavanagh is a Singer/Songwriter in NYC originally from Chicago. A working singer & published songwriter, Emily has made a career for herself at the intersection of music & service--gigging, touring, writing, & bringing music to marginalized communities in the states & abroad-including homeless & refugee communities, LGBTQ youth, & seniors with memory loss. In response to the Covid 19 pandemic, Emily launched a music initiative called "A Song for You" writing, recording & sending original songs to patients & families hit hardest by the pandemic, primarily those at the end of life. This project has grown into its own non-profit here in NYC & is launched in hospices across the country & features songs of local, touring, & grammy award winning songwriters.

Emily's music reflects a throwback sound of the 30's, 40's,& 50's while maintaining a great folk & pop sensibility. Her work can be found in various commercial placements & the instrumental of her song "Treehouse" was featured in the 2017 trailer for Woody Harrelson's film "Wilson." Emily is a touring artist, performing mainly in cities like New York City, Chicago, Dublin, and Nashville, and as a regular here at Rockwood to many sold out performances. Her music can be found on all major streaming sites. "A Song for You" music initiative can be found at https://hereisasongforyou.org
